Frequently Asked Questions

Is all the grooming done in the van?
Yes. The Grooms to Go experience takes place inside the van. The van has a generator, air-conditioning, heater, bathtub, grooming table and all the necessary equipment.

How long does the grooming take?
The average appointment takes about 60 minutes to 90 minutes to complete. This can vary depending on the breed, condition and length of coat, procedure required, temperament of the animal, etc.

What are your prices?
Kathy’s prices are based on the breed and size of the animal, the condition of his or her coat, and what the owner requests. Some circumstances in which additional charges may incur are excessive matting, shaving down or stripping, flea dips or tick removal.

How often should my pet be groomed?
In general a grooming every 4-6 weeks is recommended. The frequency varies on a per animal basis depending on breed and coat type. It is good for your pet to be groomed and/or bathed before becoming overly dirty or matted.

Should my dog have the anal glands expressed with each grooming?
Kathy will check your pet’s anal glands as part of Grooms to Go experience and will only express them if needed.

Why is shaving down sometimes more expensive than a hair cut?
If your pet’s coat is matted or is extremely thick, shaving down may be necessary and is more difficult than a hair cut. Shaving down a matted coat subjects clippers and blades to unusual wear and tear which can be costly to maintain or replace. In addition, great care and extra time is required in an effort to shave the coat evenly and avoid cutting the skin with the clippers.

My pet has a lot of mats, is it necessary to shave them out?
It depends on the severity of the matting. Minor mats can sometimes be worked out, but many times shaving down or stripping is necessary. Severe mats can cause skin irritations and hide other conditions such as hot spots, dermatitis, seborrhea, cuts, scabs, sores and redness.
